Unique cultural expedition cruises

Swan Hellenic returns

Relaunched in September 2020 to proudly continue the spirit of cultural expedition cruising pioneered in the 1950s, the new Swan Hellenic builds on its British roots, with a global cultural cruising outlook aimed at providing guests with the opportunity to ‘see what others don’t’.

See what others don’t

Aboard innovative ships, purposely designed to explore the most inspiring and inaccessible places on the planet, and following meticulously prepared itineraries, Swan Hellenic’s guests will be immersed in wild landscapes and the wildlife, peoples and unique customs of the world’s less travelled regions. From the Arctic to Antarctica, from Scotland to the Pacific Islands, from the Guianas to New Zealand and the Russian Far East.

Expeditions for Everyone

The twin-sister-ships Minerva and Vega, both ice-class expedition cruise ships, are custom-built for extreme weather conditions, from the heavy ice of the polar regions to the heat and humidity of the tropics and will be delivered in 2021. Both are designed to respect the sensitive ecosystems of the unspoilt regions they explore while offering spacious 5-star accommodation for 152 guests in 76 cabins and suites. Excellent sightlines, extensive outdoor spaces and unique attractions such as a sauna and hot tub with a panoramic view alongside the unique Swan’s Nest observation platform perched above the bow will allow guests to always clearly see and enjoy the surrounding seascapes. A third ship, due to arrive in late 2022, will accommodate 192 guests in 96 cabins and suites.

For those less mobile, hard-hulled Zodiacs will ensure all guests can enjoy the spectacular scenery from the closest and best vantage point.

Voyages with different values

Swan Hellenic’s crew includes an expedition team comprising expert guides, speakers and lecturers to enrich the guest experience every day. In size, the crew almost equals the number of guests on board, reflecting the high levels of attentive but unfussy service provided.

Swan Hellenic’s cuisine ranges from haute cuisine to the distinctive specialities of the lands and peoples the ships are sailing to.
